Description

SACD "Acallam na Senórach" (Tales of the Elders) Paul Hillier

Paul Hillier leads the National Chamber Choir of Ireland and guitarist Stewart French in this first recording of Tarik O'Regan's Acallam na Senórach: An Irish Colloquy, a work they premiered in November 2010. Sung in English, Middle Irish, and Latin and calling for sixteen voices, guitar and bodhráin (Irish frame drum), the score takes its title from the important 12th/13th-century narrative "Dialogue of the Elders" which follows two legendary heroes, Caílte and Oisín, in their travels around Ireland as they retell their ancient stories to a newly arrived Saint Patrick.

"One of the most original and eloquent of young British composers" – The Observer, UK

"Striking, intense, captivating, are all applicable descriptions of the young British composer Tarik O'Regan's music." – BBC Music
